Any sums due under this section shall be paid by the grantee to the department of conservation and recreation for deposit into the Conservation Trust, established in section 1 of chapter 132A of the General Laws, to be used to acquire land or interests in land for conservation and recreation purposes. In no event shall any funds be due from the department of conservation and recreation.
